Ingredients

  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 lb ground sweet or hot Italian ground chicken or chicken sausage or 1lb ground chicken with 1T italian seasoning*
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 Yellow & Red bell peppers cut in half seeded, deveined and cleaned

Instructions

  • Mix chopped onion, ground chicken/turkey, pizza sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan.
  • Prep bell pepper halves and then divide chicken filling evenly among them. I froze mine in a ziplock bag, but you could also do a disposable aluminum pan so that you could pop them straight in the oven.
  • Defrost one day ahead of time then bake on 375F bell pepper halves for about 45 minutes in a casserole dish or until the core temperature reaches 165F. I drained excess liquid from the dish halfway through and at the end.
  • Let sit at least 5 minutes before serving, if desired, garnish with fresh parsley leaves.

Notes

* I get mine at Sprouts
**look for a pizza sauce that uses whole tomatoes as it's base, not tomato puree or tomato paste, it will be way more flavorful!
